Come forth and drink the waters of the Glow, for this ancient weapon of war is our salvation, it is the very symbol of Atom's glory!

— Confessor Cromwell, to the Children of Atom followers in Megaton.

Confessor Cromwell (born 2233) is the leader of the The Church of the Children of Atom, a cult in Megaton in Fallout 3. that worships an undetonated atomic bomb left over from the Great War.

Background[edit | edit source]

Little is known about Cromwell's past. 44 years old in 2277, he was born in 2233 and arrived in Megaton when he was in his early 20s. The church granted him permission to stay due to the blessing and high standing of his predecessor in the church, who fostered him in the ways of Atom. Eventually, Cromwell proved to be a valuable resource in protecting and aiding the town, and he became an eccentric distraction to most of the citizens of Megaton. He is married to Mother Maya, his counterpart in the church.[1]

Daily schedule[edit | edit source]

He can be seen standing in the center of town, next to the bomb and praying to it in ankle-deep irradiated water. He even beseeches Atom to "shape his fragile form." He is heard preaching to his audience about the teachings of the Children of Atom, mainly on the subject of "birthing a thousand stars", relating to his (and the children of atoms) belief that inside every atom is an entire universe. No matter how long you sit there and listen, he will never stop talking.
